David Livingstone Birthplace

Global Citizenship Resource

This revised learning resource is designed to inspire and support schools to study the life and legacy of Scotland’s famous missionary, explorer and abolitionist, Dr David Livingstone.

The original resource was compiled by the National Trust for Scotland, and many of the original learning activities remain.

This revision has been compiled by the David Livingstone Birthplace (DLB) and the West of Scotland Development Education Centre (WOSDEC).

This resource can be downloaded as a single PDF file (Global Citizenship Learning Resource) or as nine individual PDF files.

Also see our other Learning Resources information.


We are very grateful to our key funders the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic Environment Scotland and the Scottish Government for their support in helping us deliver the Birthplace Project. Note: Please note that David Livingstone Birthplace (and the David Livingstone Trust) is no longer part of National Trust Scotland (NTS). NTS members will therefore no longer receive discounted/free entry to the Birthplace Museum.
